The wings issue is still debated in the paddock and there is a risk that the Azerbaijan Grand Prix will be studded with appeals by the teams and that the stamped papers will start after the race. Lewis Hamilton, one who does not think twice if he sees a crack to hit the enemy fortress, spoke of the flexible Red Bull wing in the press conference that opened the Baku Grand Prix, the last one before the strengthening of federal controls on the ailerons.

“I’ve heard about it, I’ve talked about it and the important thing is that they pass the tests. Of course it is an advantage on the straights, it can give a good time. Regardless of what I think, though, it doesn’t really make a difference. We will just try to do the best we can with what we have. We hope that in the future we can improve on the measurement of these parameters“, So began the seven-time world champion. What therefore, if in general he agrees with those who say that the question on the wings does not give who knows what benefit to Red Bull, underlines how in Baku, which has long straights, the advantage can be substantial.
“After Monte Carlo, the meetings were great“, Added Hamilton, who therefore minimized the controversy with the team, ‘guilty’ of having penalized him from a strategic point of view. “I am very proud, of course, to work with such a determined group of people. There is never any pointing finger, we just work together, we have tough discussions, we don’t feel out of place to question people’s opinions. We sparked a lot of debate and put a lot of effort into understanding what we can do better. That’s why we are a great team“. Great team that in any case lost a lot of points in Monte Carlo. And now she is forced to chase both in the drivers ‘and constructors’ standings. Hamilton wants to recover both already in Azerbaijan, flexible winger or not.
